Intentional Shopping: How to Shop with Purpose

The clothes we choose to wear can reflect our mood, personality, and even our political views. For some clothing is are energising fun activity whilst for others selecting what to buy and wear can be very daunting and draining.

With so much riding on what we put on in the morning, it's no wonder that making decisions about what to wear can be so difficult. But making good choices doesn't have to be hard. Here are four tips for making clothes decisions.

Consider your mood and the occasion. If you're feeling down, bright colours might not be the best choice. On the other hand, if you're going to a party, you'll want to dress up a bit. If you're going to a party, choose something that makes you feel confident and comfortable. You don't have to spend a lot of money on clothes to look good; in fact, sometimes the simplest outfits can be the most stylish. Just be sure to pay attention to your personal style and what looks good on you.

When it comes to fashion, there are two types of people: those who know what looks good on them and those who shop without a plan. If you're someone who falls into the second category, you may be wondering why your wardrobe doesn't seem to work for you. The reason is simple – when you shop without intention, you decide what really works for you, becoming the boss of your wardrobe.

The first step to creating a wardrobe that works for you is to understand your body type. Once you know your body type, you can start shopping for clothes that will flatter your figure. For example, if you're pear-shaped, try wearing fitted tops and skirts that flare out from the waist. If you're apple-shaped, try wearing clothes that have more detail around the waist, such as a belt or a wrap dress.

Think about your style. Do you like wearing lots of accessories, or do you prefer a more streamlined look? Are you comfortable in tight clothes or do you prefer something more loose?

Look at your wardrobe and pull out your favourite pieces. What seems to be the theme? What really suits you.

When it comes to what to wear, it's also important to consider your budget. You don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes that you're only going to wear once. There are a few things you can do to make sure you get the most out of your wardrobe.

One thing to keep in mind is that not everything has to be brand new. You can find great deals at charity shops, eBay and Vinted. Another option is to borrow or swap clothes from friends or family members.

If you do need to buy new clothes, try to stick with basics that can be worn in multiple ways. For example, a black t-shirt or a pair of jeans will go with pretty much anything. And don't forget about accessories! A scarf or a necklace can add a lot of personality to an outfit.

Begin to shop with intention; don’t let fashion and the media dictate what you should wear. When you shop with intention, you’re deciding what really works for you, you’re becoming the boss of your wardrobe which means becoming the boss of you.
